The “Brown­shirts” Ar­rive in S Flor­ida

The Jewish Voice - - EDITORIAL -

Dear Editor:

This past Wed­nes­day, July 5th, I fool­ishly en­tered into a de­bate with a Pro­gres­sive, Demo­crat rabbi, the topic be­ing, "Ci­vil­ity, Can we get along?" com­bined with, "The First Five Months of the Trump's Pres­i­dency." The meet­ing was spon­sored by the Boca Ra­ton Cen­tury Vil­lage Repub­li­can Club, held in an on-site syn­a­gogue. And in a civil ges­ture of friend­ship and cor­dial­ity, they in­vited Democrats to at­tend and even per­mit­ted the pres­i­dent of the Del­ray Demo­crat Club to greet the au­di­ence. Big mis­take. The guy be­gan by im­me­di­ately de­mean­ing Trump. I de­manded he be re­moved from the mi­cro­phone. That was the sig­nal for chaos.

The Democrats came pre­pared by ar­riv­ing in droves with car­pools and even per­haps a rented bus. They car­ried po­lit­i­cal signs that they at­tempted to flour­ish. They had empty wheel­chairs into which healthy peo­ple plopped and claimed their lives were threat­ened by the abol­ish­ment of Oba­maCare. Women wore their pink cats' hats. And they were bois­ter­ous, loud and threat­en­ing. To add to the prob­lem was that this scene was be­ing taped by the no­to­ri­ously anti-trump, pro-rad­i­cal Demo­crat, Sa­man­tha Bee tele­vi­sion show. Now with the pro­fes­sion­als' ex­per­tise of past­ing and edit­ing, all of Amer­ica will see how eas­ily loud mouthed, street thug like Democrats can throt­tle peace­ful Repub­li­ their own meet­ings, no less. The rabbi helped light the fuse to this can­non­ball-like bomb by claim­ing in near hys­ter­i­cal mode, that the To­rah is the source for Ko­ranic in­spired ter­ror. And this in a syn­a­gogue. Shame­ful, but sadly to be ex­pected. And from this we have to learn.

The poor mod­er­a­tor did all she could to quite down the crowd. That did no good. The Democrats were well pre­pared to de­stroy all dis­course be­tween me and my op­po­nent. I was shouted down, in­ter­rupted and threat­ened by au­di­ence mem­bers of the far-Left po­lit­i­cal per­sua­sion. If one of the evening's top­ics was, "Ci­vil­ity," that word, its def­i­ni­tion or its prac­tice was un­known to the Pro­gres­sives. It was like Mu­nich-1933 or Ham­burg-2017. Throw in the an­ar­chy in our col­leges and you've got the pic­ture.

In sum­ma­tion, Mar­jory and I had to be walk to our car by two pro­fes­sional civil­ian se­cu­rity guards who hap­pened to be in the au­di­ence. We were men­aced by guys who, in a very hos­tile man­ner ap­proached me as I left the stage. Enough said for any at­tempt to get to­gether, dis­cuss and share views with any from the men­tally un­hinged Democrats. They be­lieve in the fa­mous Obama say­ing of "Bring a gun to the fight." I surely will in the fu­ture.

Sin­cerely Alan
